Golf is 50% physical and 50% mental, or something like that,according to most ‘experts’. And as the importance of the mental side of becoming a good- or at least a decent- golfer gains more press and traction it seem like there are more and more ways and methods being touted than ever before to help golfers gain a mental edge. Renegade Mindset Techniques for Golf, by Stephen Ladd and Bill Gladwell, bases its advice around NLP and, slightly more unusually, what they term ‘light hypnosis’. But is it really a good idea to wander around a golf course hypnotized, if such things really are possible at all?
What Renegade Mindset Techniques for Golf Has to Offer
Renegade Mindset Techniques for Golf is both a decently sized ebook and a series of MP3 recordings designed to be used ‘on the go’, and even on the course maybe if you find the techniques useful.
Both Stephen Ladd and Bill Gladwell are NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) trainers.The idea of applying NLP techniques to golf game improvement is not groundbreaking, a number of people have written books and created ‘systems’ for golfers based around the idea of the past few years. What Ladd and Gladwell claim is different about their offering is that not only do they make use of ‘waking hypnosis’ techniques to help a golfer improve various aspects of their game but also that their material is presented in more of a no nonsense ‘less flowery’ than some of their ‘rivals’ offerings.
The whole system consists of 5 MP3s, the big e book and a number of ‘bonus’ golfing e books, some of which were written by other authors. The material covers everything from overcoming general pre game nerves to in game ‘focus’ techniques to hypnosis for ‘golfing weight loss’ so to say it covers a lot of ground is a bit of an understatement!
Is Renegade Mindset Techniques for Golf Worth the Investment?
Like other similar NLP based offerings how much an individual golfer can actually get out of Renegade Mindset Techniques for Golf will depend very much upon how open they are to the idea of NLP and hypnosis in general. If you tend to think such things are a bit hokey then this book won’t really change your mind about that. On the other hand if you are more open minded about ‘alternative’ training for golf then a lot of the material, especially the relaxation and visualization techniques, may prove quite helpful.
It’s also worth noting that some of the bonus material included in the $57 price tag isn’t bad either. There are books by both Sean Cochran – who is Phil Mickelson’s fitness trainer – and Susan Hill, another rather well known golf fitness coach and teacher and those alone are worth a read.
